Wild Wild Life


The credit for choosing this song belongs to our friend John Kay (Koffin Kats), who sang lead on this rendition of a classic Talking Heads track. While I was in Detroit over a weekend, we got together and laid down this track. If you have never seen the video for this song, look it up to see an early performance by John Goodman. Another highlight of working on this track was working with Mass Giorgini for the first time since the Common Rider days to master it out of Sonic Iguana.

Cash on the Barrelhead


I came across Cash on the Barrelhead while listening to Dolly Parton’s wonderful album, The Grass is Blue. The song is originally by the Louvin Brothers, a conflicted duo. We took an aggressive take on the track, and Adam stopped by to lay down some flare on the guitar.

Check back in two weeks for another track!

The Marshalltown – Olympia, WA (Undercover) Review

“Rancid have been covered on several occasions, probably most notably by NOFX, but few have come across as wonderfully eclectic yet still urgent as Chicago punk rockers The Mizzerables‘ and their cover of ‘Olympia, WA’.” —Billy Ho, The Marshalltown (December 4, 2013)

Olympia, WA


Rancid is one of our favorite bands, and this track is one of our favorites off of …And Out Come the Wolves. We recorded this while working on some folky/bluegrass arrangements for a radio show we did. There was a limited release on our main bandcamp site, but we feel that the Undercover Series is its appropriate home.
